Join CTC on Sunday 28 July at 5pm as we host one of the US’s premiere collegiate choral ensembles, the California State University Fullerton’s University Singers.

Under the baton of Dr. Robert Istad, the University Singers are internationally acclaimed for their exquisite musicianship and have performed with renowned orchestras in prestigious venues at home and abroad, touring more than a dozen countries since 2007. Continuing to build upon this remarkable legacy, Istad and the University Singers regularly collaborate with professional orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Pacific Symphony, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. They have earned praise for their professionalism and expressive musicality from conductors they have worked with including Carl St.Clair, John Mauceri, John Williams, Eugene Kohn, Sir Neville Marriner, James Conlon, and Keith Lockhart. Whether performing under the batons of John Williams or Gustavo Dudamel at the Hollywood Bowl; backing the vocals of Andrea Bocelli; or featured at Carnegie Hall, Chartres Cathedral, or Cal State Fullerton’s own Meng Concert Hall, the University Singers never fail to deliver the unmistakable sound synonymous with their reputation.

2024 sees the Cal State Fullerton University Singers touring to Rwanda and South Africa and we are privileged to host them in a evening of exquisite a capella music.

Cal State Singers’ repertoire include African American Spirituals such as Ezekiel Saw The Wheel and Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel, as well as music by Eriks Esenvalds (The Long Road) and Coldplay (Yellow), and “global sound” which include Master KG’s Jerusalema and a Haitian traditional song.

The Cape Town Camerata is currently preparing for their tour to Spain in October and will present some of their tour repertoire at this performance.
